DNP3 Tutorial Video: Outstations, Masters, & RTUs...

What you'll learn about DNP3 in this video:

  1. The two major elements of DNP3-based systems
  2. SCADA protocols vs. Telecom protocols
  3. The 4 goals of DNP3 protocol
  4. DNP3 vs. SNMP
  5. Upstream vs. Downstream DNP3 information
  6. How DNP3 will allow you to:
    • Monitor temperature, humidity, battery levels, voltage, fuel levels, and...
    • Detect and correct problems quickly
    • Eliminate bottlenecks and inefficiencies
    • Control larger, more complex processes without an army of experts
  7. Master stations, DNP3 concentrators, and other-protocol concentrators

DNP3 is one of the common open-standard protocols used in remote-monitoring systems. You'll find it in many different devices for industrial SCADA use, and even devices for other remote-monitoring applications.

Because DNP3 is so common, you need to understand the basics so you can make good decisions. You need to understand how to choose good masters and outstations (RTUs). You'll learn both of these things in this video.

You also need to understand how to make DNP3 work seamlessly with other protocols like Modbus & SNMP, because almost no network includes only one protocol. You'll see strategies for integrating alarms carried by all sorts of different source protocols into your single, unified monitoring umbrella.

There is no other network on the planet that is exactly like yours. For that reason, you need to build a monitoring system that's the right fit for you.

"Buying more than you need" and "buying less than you need" are real risks. You also have to think about training, tech support, and upgrade availability.

Send me a quick online message about what you're trying to accomplish. I'll work with you to build a custom PDF application diagram that's a perfect fit for your network.

Make an Informed Decision

Your network isn't off-the-shelf.

Your monitoring system shouldn't be, either.
